Summer is here! (drawing of the day + reading recommendation) / Ljeto je tu! (crtež dana +preporuka za čitanje)!


Today's fashion illustration is that- of a swimsuit! Very appropriate for this heat. What's your favourite thing about Summer? Is it eating ice-cream without a guilty conscience? That magical scent of Summer rain? Is it waking up ridiculously early, but instead of a cold darkness being greeted by a gentle dawn? Or is the way days tend to last longer, but still fly by so far? Is it the long evening walks? I know, I know...so many glorious things to choice from, who could name just one. 


Današnja modna ilustracija je - ona kupaćega kostima. Vrlo prikladno za ovu vrućinu. Koja je vama najdraža stvar kod ljeta? Jedenje sladoleda bez grižnje savjesti? Čarobni miris ljetne kiše? Buđenje smiješno rano ujutro, a umjesto hladne tame tamo čeka  nježna zora? Ili je to što se čini da dani traju dugo, a opet tako brzo prolete? Ili su to duge kasne šetnje? Znam, znam...toliko toga se može odabrati, tko bi odabrao samo jednu stvar.

Summer. Wearing a one piece swimsuit as a top. Why not? Time when we get to feel like a queen of a jungle- even if the only jungle we have ever seen is a concrete one. Summer. Time when imagination roars wild. Summer. The smell of roses in city gardens. Summer. Daily visit to library. 

Ljeto. Nošenje jednodijelnoga kupaćega kao topa. Zašto ne? Vrijeme kada se možemo osjećati kao kraljica jungle, čak i kada je jedina jungla u kojoj smo bili ona urbana. Ljeto. Vrijeme kada mašta divlja. Ljeto.  Miris ruža u gradskim vrtovima. Ljeto. Dnevni posjeti knjižnici.

Besides sharing this illustration, I would also like to recommend two books to you: Eva Luna by Isabel Allende and Selected Poems by Marina Tsvetaeva. I already wrote a book review for Eva Luna, you can read it here. I've been a fan of Allende's writing for a while (here is a review I wrote for another book of hers). I don't have a review for Marina yet, it might take me a while to write it. You can find some of Tsvetaeva's poetry (translated in English) on wikipedia here

Osim ove ilustracije, voljela bih vam i preporučiti dvije knjige: Eva Luna od Isabel Allende i Izabrane pjesme Marine Cvjetajeve. Napisala sam već ogled knjige za Evu Lunu, možete ga pročitati ovdje. Već sam duže ljubitelj spisateljice Isabel Allende (još jedan ogled možete pročitati ovdje). Za Marinu nemam još ništa napisano, a možda će mi i trebati još vremena da nešto napišem. Neke njezine pjesme možete pročitati u hrvatskom prijevodu ovdje.

  7. Divno, divno! Jao nemoguće je nabrojati što sve volim kod ljeta kad ima toliko stvari, mene je recimo najmanje briga za kupanje (doslovno mislim da bi mogla ljeto preživjeti i bez kupaćeg jer me stvarno ne privlači plivanje), ali me možda najviše veseli dužina dana.

    1. ja prije nisam izlazila iz mora i ljeto mi se vrtilo oko kupanja, ali ove godine sumnjam da ću moći i otići do plaže, tako da više uživam u drugim stvarima.

  8. This illustration is a perfect capture of the summer spirit! My favorite thing about summer has to be the longer days and the carefree feeling that the season carries.

  11. I think wearing a one-piece with a skirt is a perfect summer look! And I love as usual your drawing - this time it is so wonderful summerly and now I'm only a bit sad I don't own a swimsuit like this :) Happy Thursday, dear Ivana!

  13. Summer's here already, we are facing another heatwave, mercury is climbing up to 98F. Well as long as the A/C is running fine, I am not complaining, at least not too much, lol. Another good illustration, Ivana.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

WINTER DESTINATIONS HERZEGOVINA: MOUNTAIN PRENJ, RUJISTE

A HERZEGOVIAN WINTER FAIRY TALE

What are some of best winter destinations in Herzegovina? That is the questions that I plan to answer with a series of posts. To start with, I'm bringing you a bit of winter magic and taking you with me to mountain Rujiste (proper spelling Rujište, pronunciation  Ruyshte) located on mountain Prenj. This mountain is only a short drive away from Mostar city, which makes it ideal for a little winter getaway. 
I've always loved mountains, so when we went for a little drive and ended  up here, I was ecstatic. Winter fairy tale coming my way, that's something I didn't mind at all. I'm a big fan of hiking (as some of you may know). Not that I did a lot of hiking here (I'll explain why later). Anyhow, this is a great place for visiting, whether or not you plan to hike. Just chilling or photograph taking is fine too. For me personally, there is just something about the combination of high altitude and fresh air that makes my heart sing. …

HOW TO WEAR MORE WHITE IN WINTER IN FIVE SIMPLE STEPS

It seems that white in winter is a real trend nowadays. Nobody lives following that rule 'no white after labor day' anymore. Today I've prepared some style tips and outfit information for you, because I do believe that white can be a great way to refresh our winter style. I'll be happy if I inspire you to give white a try. Anything from a white bag to white shoes can make your winter outfits more fun. So, why not give this lovely colour a chance? Here are my five easy steps to start wearing more white in winter right now. Most of these don't even require you do any shopping as I'm sure you'll be able to find at least some of these items in your closet. Sometimes it is all about reexamining what we already have in our closets. 


1. START WITH ACCESSORIES 

If you find wearing white overwhelming, you can always try baby steps. Start with white shoes (super trendy right now) and/or bag and move from there. Next thing you can do is try other white accessories, su…

READING UPDATE, NEW FINDS: MARIO VARGAS LLOSA AND RAGNAR JONASSON

I did a lot of reading this January& February. I even discovered two new authors that I plan to follow more closely, so I'm really happy about that. The same thing happened last year, if I remember correctly. There is something about the start of the new year that makes me motivated to read even more. As Asimov wisely said, self-education is best education. Not that I don't believe in formal education. I've spent a lot of money and time on my formal education. I've also invested in different courses and workshops. It is always easier to study with a good teacher. As someone who has worked as a teacher, I can see many benefits of standard education. However, it is also important to work on our education ourselves because we are the ones who know ourselves best (or at least we should) so we know on what areas we should work on. The way I interpret Asimov words is not a critique of formal education, but a call for continuous education. I'm a strong believer that …
